BEST RATED CRIMINAL ATTORNEY IN LONG BEACH
Past results are indeed the best predictor of future success. When you are looking for the best Long Beach criminal lawyer to help you or a loved one on a criminal case, reviews are often the best way of researching under the time pressure of finding the best lawyer fast.
Long Beach criminal law specialist, attorney Matthew Kaestner, has only 5 star reviews by prior clients across the web. On google, reviews ranging in age from 6 years to the present are all 5 stars. On Yelp, there are 32 five star reviews. Only 5 star reviews are posted for attorney Kaestner on all other rating sites including facebook, lawyers.com and others.
Review aggregator sites such as Moz local, though sometimes incomplete, confirm that viewing groups of reviews over different websites can give a more complete picture of an attorney’s reviews throughout the web and not just on a particular site. On March 8, 2019, Moz local noted that Matthew Kaestner Attorney-Criminal Law Specialist ranked only 5 star reviews on the 4 review sites they surveyed.
It is also important to note that some review sites such as Yelp, will only show certain reviews as “recommended” and hide, usually accessed by clicking a faded link lower on the page, other reviews. Thus on March of 2019, attorney Kaestner had thirty-two 5 star reviews on Yelp, but only 4 were displayed as recommended. It is important therefore to make sure to look for all reviews and not simply those positive reviews a review site might charge the lawyer extra to be displayed whereas other reviews, perhaps less flattering reviews, are hidden or more difficult to locate.
Another method to find the best Long Beach criminal lawyer is to consult traditional lawyer review sites. Martindale Hubbell, formed in 1868 has been seen as the gold standard for the rating of attorneys and law firms. The highest possible rating is “AV.” An attorney becomes “AV rated” by subjecting him or herself to a review process by Martindale Hubbell that includes the survey of other lawyers and judges in the geographic area where the attorney practices. Attorney Matthew Kaestner is “AV rated” by Martindale Hubbell.
To conduct a Martindale Hubbell search of a potential attorney to determine if he or she is AV rated, simply go to www.Martindale.com and enter the attorney’s name and only “AV rated” attorneys will be indicated with “AV” when their page is displayed.
Finally, all lawyers in California are entitled to practice law in any field they choose.

In fact, fewer than one out of every 700 lawyers in California is a certified criminal law specialist. Long Beach attorney, Matthew Kaestner, has been a certified criminal law specialist since 1999. He has been re-certified every 5 years since that time.
